Step 3

PRACTICE MAKES PROGRESS: Consistently practicing good sleep hygiene can make a difference.

Step 1: Get Informed

Being informed about your sleep puts you in the best position for quality sleep. 

Why is sleep important? It’s no secret that sleep matters —when it comes to your health, adequate sleep ranks right up there with a balanced diet and regular exercise. Poor sleep affects mood, judgment, and ability to concentrate. If you don’t get enough sleep regularly, you could also be increasing your risk of developing chronic conditions, such as heart disease, mental health problems, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. 

Take the following steps to start your journey to better sleep.

1. Watch the Video: How Sleep Works - Understanding the Science of Sleep

Learn exactly what's at work in our bodies and brains when we sleep.

2. Take a Sleep Assessment

Find out how your sleep quality has been over this past month. 

Step 2: Get Support 

So how do we improve our ability to get sleep? We can train our brains to sleep better. Sleep hygiene means going through a routine that trains your body to know when to sleep. Having proper sleep hygiene means having both a bedroom environment and a daily routine that promotes consistent, uninterrupted sleep.

Join a program or access your health plan benefits and get the support you need to develop good sleep hygiene.
